These are recommendations made by tropers for Jeeves and Wooster fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. After a few samples, you will be able to note the interests of the tropers recommending them, and judge whether you might be also interested in a certain 'fic.

Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found herenote . Do warn when a fanfic may head into sexualnote  or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.


Reviews of fics are encouraged, but if you choose to write one, please make it substantive, and give specific details about what you liked / disliked in the fic. If you want to give a fic a thumbs-up without writing a full review, you can add your troper handle to the Recommendations Line. Please refrain from posting "Comments" or Conversation in the Main Page though; that goes in the discussion page.

    Recommendations Template 
Title of the Fanfic by Author OR Fic Trope Page, by Author (Link)Recommended by: Troper Name
  • Synopsis: What's the story about? Give here a brief summary of the plot. It would be also useful to point out in what moment of the series the story takes place. If it's a Gen Fic but it has some romantic elements, note here the characters involved too.
  • Pairing(s): If it's a Shipping Fic, list here the pairings that feature in the fic (warn here if it's het, male slash or female slash). If it's a Gen Fic, remove this line. To tell the difference between the two, notice if the focus of the fic is on a romantic relationship or if it focuses on the other aspects of the story. In case of doubt, classify the story according to the genres it's been tagged: the Romance tag for Shipping, absence of that tag for Gen Fic.
  • Tags: If any are known. This would be things like W.A.F.F., Lemon, Dark Fic, any known Crossovers etc.

General Fics
Stories which primarily focus on the normal goings on of the cast.

It's A Good Life, Sir by hotwaterfortea

  • Recommended by: Roo
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A short story told from Jeeves's perspective, set in the 1940s at the beginning of World War II. War is looming, the world is changing, yet Bertie Wooster and his friends and family continue on like they have since 1910. Jeeves knows why: Bertie Wooster is a subconscious Reality Warper.

Take the Noise from Me by Trista zevkia

  • Recommended by bregalad
  • Status: Complete
  • Warnings: some violence, dark themes, AU
  • Synopsis: Bertie is rather fond of his rubber ducky - but why? And who are the characters featured in his tales? An alternative story of how Bertie and Jeeves met for the first time. Namely, in the bedlam.
  • Comments: An original twist on the Wodehouse universe. Short but very effective.

Jeeves and the Act of Faith by Storyfan

  • Recommended by Roo
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Once again, Bertie (who is driving everyone around him up the wall with a newfound passion for alliterations) finds himself roped into going along with a Zany Scheme conducted by Stiffy Pinker, née Byng, and has to impersonate Major Plank in order to convince a bishop and his committee to give the Hon. Rev. Harold "Stinker" Pinker a rural deanship. And this, of course, means it's curtains up for another round of classic Wodehouseian misunderstandings, awkward situations, and an enormous mess that Jeeves has to sort out. It's the sort of plot that wouldn't have been out of place in the later seasons of the TV series, when things got a little sillier.

Crossover Fics
Stories which crossover with other characters or works.

Green Ice by Adina

  • Recommended by: Paul A
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Lord Attenbury's emeralds have gone missing while he was staying with Aunt Dahlia, and for once Bertie had nothing to do with it. Fortunately, Bertie's old Oxford chum "Flim" Wimsey is on hand, and proves to have a knack for the detecting business; Bertie also shows hitherto-unsuspected depths. Starts as a typically fluffy Wooster story, but turns over some unexpected rocks; the narration is all Bertie, but the villains are more in Lord Peter's line, as is the undercurrent flowing from the aftereffects of the War.
  • Warnings: See above about "aftereffects of the War", some of which get described in detail and language not usual for Wodehouse. Also, Alternate Character Interpretation of a canon character which is not going to be everybody's cup of tea.

The Rummy Business of Old Blooey by Cloud Wanderer (crossover with My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic)

  • Recommended by: Roo
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: What if Bertie Wooster was a pony in Equestria, and attended the Grand Galloping Gala at the same time as Twilight Sparkle and her friends? Join Barney Trotter (the pony version of Bertie Wooster) and his valet, Cheese (Jeeves, of course), as they try to help Barney's old chum, Prince Blueblood (the titular "Old Blooey") get out of an accidental engagement at the Gala. While this is, of course, a very Alternate Universe version of Jeeves and Wooster, they have the same personalities as ever and the writing style is very Wodehouse-ish. Look for the Mane Six in cameo appearances.

Jeeves and the Last Time Lord by aurilly (crossover with Doctor Who)

  • Recommended by: Roo
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Shortly after the events of The Code of the Woosters, Bertie gets two telegrams from Brinkley Court announcing that there's problems between Madeline and Gussie again, and a third telegram that comes from nowhere that just warns of impending doom. As Bertie and Jeeves set out for Brinkley Court, they are stopped by two men who claim to know Jeeves — one of them introducing himself as "the Doctor," and the other going by "Captain Jack Harkness." What follows is not quite a romp through time and space — but a romp through Brinkley Court in order to find out why Madeline Basset has started acting so weird... in fact, she's started to act like a sane, normal and sensible person.

Shipping Fics
Stories whose primary focus is on romantic or sexual relationships between the cast.

Jeeves and The Club for Inverts by triedunture

  • Recommended by Goodwrench
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Bertie/Jeeves
  • Synopsis: Bertie goes to a rather rummy sort of club, the last place one would expect to find one's brilliant valet. What follows is more rummy stuff, lots of drinking, much too much smoking, and some other unmentionable things.
  • Warnings: Slashy. Very, Very slashy, in fact. NC-17.
  • Comments: Despite the unpromising title, this is a simply killer piece of writing. The author has written many excellent Bertie/Jeeves stories besides this one.

Sorting Out The Dance Card by Thirstyrobot.

  • Recommended by Marksthespot, bregalad
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Jeeves/Wooster
  • Summary: An overheard conversation changes everything. Histories, mysteries, romance, and a dive or two into the soup.
  • Warnings: Mentions of past dubcon. R or NC-17 overall.
  • Comments: A quick and absorbing read. Very good use of secondary and tertiary characters. I have this saved to my harddrive and have read it multiple times.

Pace the Meadows with a Heavy Tread by Lisztful

  • Recommended by: Amethystasheryn
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Jeeves/Wooster.
  • Summary: Bertie has a rather rummy realization, but there's hardly time to consider it, what with all the dratted relations who've decided to invade the old Wooster homestead, not to mention Honoria Glossop. Only Jeeves could possibly save this day.
  • Warnings: Slash, but nothing worse than a kiss.
  • Comments: A story that does a fantastic job of capturing Bertie's unique style of narration, this would be a great read with or without the romantic element. Bertie's realisation that he loves Jeeves is understated, but not forgotten: He has other things and people to deal with, but when all's sorted at the end of the day, the romance gets its turn. Jeeves and Bertie are both flawlessly in character while working out their feelings for one another, and Lisztful gracefully preserves both their voices and their dignity throughout the encounter. Very worth a read.

Time and Again by darkeyedseer'

  • Recommended by: bregalad
  • Vanished from the internet. Please post a link if found.
  • Tags: hurt/comfort
  • Pairings: Jeeves/Wooster.
  • Summary: After a catastrophic bicycle ride in the rain, Bertie has a painful realization about his family, friends and possibly Jeeves.
  • Warnings: very mild slash (declarations of love), planned suicide, WWI remembrances, copious amounts of angst
  • Comments: If you've ever thought Bertie deserves a hug for all the abuse he has to cope with, this is your fic. The parts about the war are a bit of a stretch for a Wodehousian narrative, but the sheer emotional intensity of the story and the ever-present humour manage to keep it fresh and enjoyable. Definitely worth a read.

Jeeves and the Dangerous Discovery by Mice

  • Recommended by: bregalad
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Jeeves/Wooster.
  • Summary: It was inevitable that one day, Jeeves and Bertie accidentally let their guard down, and the true nature of their relationship is found out. Now they must escape from the familial wrath, and find a new home to start a new life. But it's even more difficult than it seems...
  • Warnings: explicit slash (NC-17), graphic depictions of violence
  • Comments: This lengthy fic explores the possible outcome of Bertie and Jeeves's relationship, and does it in an interesting and realistic manner. Bertie's voice is as entertaining as in the original books, the secondary characters are handled well, and the overall story is exciting and very moving. The author's other works are worth checking out, too.
